The Bars, 2009
Video, 4:3. 8’18
Video The Bars shows an attitude of the Catholic Church towards homosexuality based on a real confession. The confession was recorded using a voice recorder in a confession booth and is accompained by a video recording of a church. At the beginning, the video shows a cross. As we are slowly approaching the question of homosexuality, the camera is zoomed out and at the end, we see the whole interior of the church from behind the bars.
The video is completed with a letter with the stand of Slovak bishops towards this work. After exhibiting it at Moscow Biennial for Young Art 2014 Kristián Németh was excommunicated from Catholic Church.
